can I have Mac Mail using send from my business email address instead of address?

Annoying that I use to sync between all of my apple devices but my work emails come from my account.

In the Mail's account information/email address box, add any extra addresses you might want to send from as a comma-separated list. Thereafter, Compose windows' From address box will have a dropdown listing each of those addresses.

I use this with another IMAP provider but I don't see any reason why it would be provider sensitive. See this link

Literally speaking, this is spoofing the From address, but it's trivial to do and therefore a common practice. Anyone who cares to could read the headers and tell that it was posted from, ... – JRobert Aug 13 '11 at 15:33
... but they'd have to make an effort to do so. Having yourself(at) in the From address makes the point that this is a business communication rather than a personal one. – JRobert Aug 13 '11 at 15:34
